Friends and family should follow these “”one another” scriptures!

Friends empathize with each other.
Friends help one another.
Friends do not gossip about each other. (Gossip separates the best of friends – Proverbs 16:28b)

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! – Philippians 2:5-8

Can you imagine a world where we all abide by these scripture verses?

The Love And Forgiveness Equations


“I’ll get even”
”She will be sorry”
”No one does this to me and gets away with it”
”I will never speak to him again”
”Vengeance is mine”

People who say these things do not really know Jesus or the reasons behind his death.

Colossians 3:12-14 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Love = Compassion + Kindness + Humility + Gentleness + Patience + Forgivness = Perfect Unity!

Ephesians 4:31-32 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Love = Compassion + Kindness + Humility + Gentleness + Patience + Forgiveness – Bitterness – Rage – Anger – Brawling – Slander – Malice = Perfect Unity!

You Look Different


Hi there!

You, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you.
 
Let that thought sink in for a moment. The Spirit of God lives in you and you are not in the realm of the flesh.

If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 

All believers, including you, have this Spirit inside, a Spirit of Christ.

If Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 

Christ is in you, the Spirit of God is in you, can you feel it?

If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

The same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you.

You just read Romans 8:9-11 as it relates to you. You are a work in progress continuously being transformed into God’s image.

God sees you with His big beautiful redemptive eyes.
God looks real good on and inside you.
You do look different today.
Feel good about yourself.
Take heart.
